As my blog is still relatively new, I wanted to make sure I got all of the main eras (TOS/TMP/TNG-DS9-VOY) covered right off the bat. The below three slow into the ‘Lost Era’ though (2293-2364) that I believe is important in connecting events in the latter half of the 23rd century (TMP) with those in the latter half of the 24th century (TNG/DS9/VOY).
If you can’t guess by the title, the ship I’m presenting today is another old-school FASA design, the Loknar class Frigate.

When you look at it closer, it seems to have more in common with the NX-class from Enterprise than the Akira does……(hence my title 😉 )
Having such an interest in naval history and using that as inspiration for much of my work, I developed somewhat of a fixation on the idea of Starfleet fielding a carrier or 2 of it’s own. After alot of scouring, I came up with 3……
To fill the shuttle/hangar bays of the aforementioned ships, I’ve also come up with 2 decent attack fighters
Part II will focus more on TMP era designs……will there be a part III (covering TNG/DS9/VOY + Future) ?? That depends on what I dig up and whether or not I can work from it…….
The most time intensive publication I’ve put together concerns my own take on the Constitution Class. I’ve taken a semi-canonical approach which might be unsettling to some, but hopefully fascinating to most others. Along with the usual history, specifications and blueprints, I’ve also included a registry list and a highly detailed ‘Annotations’ section in which I’ve tried to explain why I’ve described the class the way I have.

Here’s a data sheet I’ve created for a classic FASA design
This blog is a simple venture I intend to serve as a showcase for my work. From time to time, you might also find random musings on related (or general Trek-themed) topics.
My work itself consists mainly of starship data sheets (created in Microsoft Publisher 07 and saved in PDF format) created in the style pioneered by the famed non-canon ‘bible’ Ships of the Starfleet – Volume One/Revised. A history, pictures (if available), specifications and blueprints (if available) make up each data sheet along with a bibliography citing sources and material used.
Most of my work so far has been in the TMP era (somewhat ironic considering the era in which I set myself overall, see below….) which I really find the most fascinating so far, though I have done a bit of work in TNG and even some in the TOS era as well.
The “2414” part of the blog title alludes to the year in which I chose to set myself. Going far into the future allows more creative freedom as far as history, ship design, technology etc. is concerned. Sometime in the future, I’ll post more detailed information (timeline etc.) on this.
